EMOTION FIRST...EVERYTHING ELSE SECOND

Art Director & Conceptual Portrait Photographer currently based in Providence, RI. Available for commissions and exhibitions internationally.

Uninhibited and uncensored. A goofball with a lively demeanor and intense passion. This makes me easily relatable, giving me a competitive edge among diverse groups of people, rendering even the most camera shy finding comfort and confidence in front of my camera.

Artistically colorful and emotionally deep. My work is an ongoing exploration of narratives that blend of soul, humor, personality and subculture in stark contrast of the status quo.  I’m a crock pot of ideas on low simmer, blending experimentation with raw emotions and risque nature. I like Bold and poetic, thought provoking and daring, lively and personal. Emotion always come first, then the rest of it second. 

A Shibari Artist, Thrill Seeker, Cooking Hobbiest, & Gamer Geek. Here lies an inseparable line between my life and my photographic art.
